HOLIDAY SEASON RECAP: PART 1, PATCHWORK

I've had little time to collect myself after my whirlwind holiday season and momentous 2013. But I want to share some photos from last month's shows before we get too far into the New Year.

I did two craft fairs last month:

Patchwork Santa Ana and Crafty Wonderland in Portland.

Ben and I had plans to visit my family in California during Thanksgiving, which coincided with the Patchwork Show in Santa Ana on December 1st. My sis, who lives in Orange County, is a Patchwork veteran, having sold Mandalanda, her collection of accessories, at several of their events. So we teamed up and applied to the Winter show together. And we got in!

 Patchwork had mobile pop-up shops and food trucks, like this dope book mobile.

Stay tuned for photos from Crafty Wonderland! I hope the New Year is off to a great start for you.
